Celebrity watch in Punta del Este, Uruguay

One of the ritziest cities in South America, Punta del Este is the playground of the rich and famous. It is a city where the fun never stops. The moment the sun rises until the moon fades, Punta del Este will leave you breathless.

A small city located in a narrow peninsula in southeast Uruguay, Punta del Este’s population is about 20,000, but is teeming with thousands of tourists all year round. It is the safest city in Uruguay and its mild climate means you can enjoy a visit at anytime of the year. Because it draws in thousands of visitors, Punta del Este has its own international airport, the Aeropuerto Internacional de Punta del Este, located in the municipality of Maldonado, just a few minutes from the city.

There are so many things to enjoy in Punta del Este including water activities in the beaches of Playa Mansa and Playa Brava. Enjoy savoring delightful dishes in its  restaurants, a walk along its promenade, the view of the famous sculpture known as “The Hand on the Sand”, people watch in its main avenue called ”la Gorlero”, and visit Artigas Square where you can shop for beautiful handicrafts. You can also visit the Taller de Casapueblo museum, Museo del Mar, Arboretum Lussich, La Barra Bridge, and Alto de la Ballena Vineyards, to name a few. Party when the sun sets at the Buddha Bar, Mambo Club, El Barcito, Moby Dick or Tio Jack.

Naomi Campbell, George Clooney, Martin Amis, and Shakira are among the famous celebrities who have been spotted in the city. Who knows who you will be hobnobbing with, when you take a vacation in Punta del Este!
